First time poster with a question or two.
I recently picked up a Rem SPT-58 on the cheap that needed some attention. In the process of taking it down and giving it a good healthy cleaning, I found that the "Action Spring Stop" was cracked and broken into three or more pieces.
After doing some online research I'm wondering what I need for replacement...I noticed that there are two different "Action Spring Stops" listed in the parts breakdown in the owner's manual from the Remington site: http://www.remington.com/~/media/Files/Owners-Manuals/Model%20Sportsman%2058.ashx
Does anyone know how different the Magnum Grade Action Spring Stop and the regular Action Spring Stop are?
After poking around online for a while I ordered Product No. 74140A from Numrich. I hope it's the proper part.
Next...how in the heck am I going to get that darn thing back into the magazine tube. With the tension from the magazine spring it would appear that it is going to be a major PITA.
I just put in a new firing pin and firing pin spring in this nice ol' girl and am really looking forward to test fire.
Any help from the knowledge base here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!Image courtesy of http://stevespages.com/ipb-remington-58.html.
